what medicare does. so that will not help. then there is long-term care insurance. great insurance, but you have to buy it before you are sick. so that is often not able to be done. then comes medicaid, which is the program which is a security blanket, but you need to proactively make yourself eligible for medicaid. >> it is quite an indoctrination to learn all these rules. when you reach age 65 and are thinking about retirement, you don't think you need a nursing home, but you better start understanding the rules. that is when we encourage people to sit down and talk about it. >> thank you for coming in. away from today congressman
